Canada's Forest Inventory 1991 (CanFI91) replaces the 1986 version Can FI86: The inventory is an aggregation from provincial and other sources of the best information available in 1991. The database is spatially referenced in 47 000 cells. The report presents some standard statistical and map products to describe the distribution and structure of the forest resource.

The inventory now covers all major blocks of forest. In addition to the core attributes some auxiliary information has been added concerning forest region, stocking, growth, access, policy constraint, the wood production forest, and the importance of the forest for other uses.

Successive versions of CanFI (1981, 1986, 1991) are the best available information at those times, but differences between them can not be used as estimates of real change.
